Hollywood and the Homefront: Tinsel Town's Contribution to World War II

2:00 PM - 3:15 PM
Wenatchee Library
Periodical Room
During World War II, the War Department realized the importance of not only keeping up the morale of America’s fighting forces abroad, but the morale of those at home. The result was an unprecedented push by Hollywood to contribute morale-building war dramas, troop entertainment, and training films to the war effort. Special radio programs, documentary films, and live performances told Americans at home that they too could serve in the defense of their country by purchasing war bonds, participating in scrap drives, planting Victory Gardens, and volunteering.

Experience the still-powerful images, radio, and film that emerged from this dramatic time in American history. Audio historian and former broadcaster John Jensen shares rarely known stories and anecdotes from Hollywood’s war effort, and shows examples of wartime propaganda through various media that was used to educate, inform, and sway American public opinion.

A former San Francisco broadcaster, John Jensen is an avid collector of music, movies, and radio broadcasts of the 1930s and 40s. Early fascination led to employment as general manager of KMPX, a radio station devoted to playing the music and radio broadcasts of those years. He has produced two radio broadcasts that were heard world-wide. As an audio historian, he has provided research and assorted media to filmmakers such as Jack Haley, Jr., Frances Ford Coppola, and George Lucas. Read more about John Jensen and his talk here.
